"I've been hanging my hat up al the Veteran's Hospital in Cedar- rook." Tim explained, "Thought d like to compare it with the ay out in the Empire here," "1 see." The doorman, under- landing, nodded slowly. A bellboy who nad just carried guest's suiteases to a car was currying back to the doors. "Jigger!" The doorman called to he bellboy. The bellboy, shivering, slopped. ?he doorman went lo him.

Tim searched the whirling mass bcnealh him for sign of Jean llo- land, followed with his eyes each flashing face, each tossing fair head, but he could not find her. The minutes whirled by with the dancers and Ihe evening was half over before Tim reali/ed H. Then, the dancing and the music and the gaiety slopped. The time had come to choose the dress of the year. Jean had not been dancing. She had been saving herself till time came for the modeling of the dresses, and it was then that Tim saw her first.

A few feel away from him the television men had their cameras set up and Tim to all appearances was one of the unit, If the elegance and opulence Tim had seen at the canopied entrance of the Empire a few minutes back had seemed a fiction to him, the scene below now was pure fanlasy. It would have been an extraordinary spectacle to anybody except one jaded wilh luxury and weary of pageantry.
